WTI - 19.30 New Day Rollover


Recommended Posts

I'm a long time FX trader who has recently started to trade WTI. I have noticed that unlike FX pairs, which start their new day at 10pm, and trade 24 hours a day, WTI appears to start a new day at 19.30 BST, and closes between 22.00-23.00 BST. Is the 22.00-23.00 the only close, and do other commodities start their new day at 19.30?


I'm finding this information hard to find on the IG site

What's the difference?

I hear people specialize in things like trading the FTSE 100.  Why would people specialize to such a ridiculous degree?  Aren't the patterns the same for everything?

I have noticed that there tends to be a squeeze, of an average of 30 pips (smallest I seen in backtesting is 9 pips, and the largest is 119 pips) in the last 5 minutes on WTI, before the new day begins. Tonight, the squeeze was only 14 pips, once the spread in taken into account. That is a great trading opportunity.

As for the closed periods, I want to be able to ensure that I'm not left holding a trade into the close, and having to stay up an extra hour to complete it. If I know the closed periods, I and plan accordingly.

    • Hi @D600 Thank you for reaching out. We apologize for the delay in responding to you on a timely manner. You will not be able to open new positions on this market, however you will be able to close positions you currently hold. This is most likely due exposure where IG has reached it's exposure limit in the market. All the best, OfentseIG

    • FTSE, DAX and Nasdaq consolidate after latest leg higher The FTSE, DAX and Nasdaq appear to be consolidating after a period of significant upside. Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  FTSE manages to remain above key support The FTSE 100 has been showing some signs of potential weakness of late, with price falling back into a new pattern of lower highs and lows. That signalled the potential for a new retracement period to give back some of the gains seen earlier in the month. However, we are yet to see any notable downside take shape, with the key 7690 support level holding out for now. A break back through that level would bring about greater confidence of a wider retracement lower. However, given the fact that we have seen price now pushing up into the recent swing-high of 7786, there is a good chance that we see continued consolidation or even a move higher from here. Source: ProRealTime DAX consolidates as it threatens to roll over The DAX has similarly been showing signs of potentially rolling over, with price following up a recent pullback with a subsequent 76.4% Fibonacci retracement. That threatens to provide a second move lower, with a decline through 14903 bringing about a new lower low and confirmation of the recent lower high. With that in mind, keep an eye out for a break below 14903 to signal the potential start of a wider pullback for the DAX here. Until then, price continues to consolidate as we await a signal to tell us where we go from here. Source: ProRealTime Nasdaq pulls back from key resistance The Nasdaq has been heading sharply lower since rallying into the key swing-high resistance level of 12258. A move up through that level would bring about a fresh bullish signal for the index, completing a double bottom formation on the daily timeframe. However, for now the index is reversing lower in a bid to potentially continue the wider bearish theme. Nonetheless, this pullback does currently look to simply maintain the pattern of higher lows seen on the four-hour chart, with the 11714 and 11816 Fibonacci support levels coming into view here. They highlight the potential for another turn upwards before long, with a break back below the 11548 required to bring about a confirmation signal that the index has topped out after reversing from key resistance at 12258.
